Situated far enough away from the city to offer residents gracious country living.
Situated far enough away from the city to offer residents gracious country living, yet close enough to take advantage of Santa Fe’s unique amenities and attractions, this gated community lies atop the Caja del Rio plateau, approximately 15 minutes outside the City Different. The lots are generous (78 lots on 1,200 acres), the views expansive, and privacy ensured. The architectural aesthetic here ranges from Pueblo Revival, to Territorial, to other alluring styles, but the development’s homeowner covenants ensure continuity in character and quality.
Piñon and juniper dot the landscape, and there are well-maintained, rustic gravel and dirt roads. There’s easy access to trails, too – for hiking, biking, and for horses. Residents savor sunrises over the Sangre de Cristo Mountains to the east, and sunsets over the Jemez Mountains in the west. The public Marty Sanchez Golf Course is nearby, and it’s a short drive to the Nordic and Alpine trails of the Santa Fe Ski Basin and to miles of hiking trails in the Santa Fe National Forest. And on the way up or down the road to these amenities is an even sweeter amenity: Ten Thousand Waves, with outdoor hot tubs, massages, spa treatments, and its own Japanese-style restaurant. In the summertime, opera lovers can partake of the nearby, open-air and world-renowned, Santa Fe Opera.
La Tierra Nueva’s wide-open spaces, substantial lots, excellent homes, and its proximity to Santa Fe make it the perfect Santa Fe real estate choice for those who want it all.
